You Taste More

It's been very interesting how our weather has been these days of September.  Last evening's temps were similar to July's to where there wasn't even a chill outdoors after sundown.  Still thinking it must be due to the recent hurricanes pushing warmer air in our direction.Most of my day was spent performing administrative duties.  The paperwor … continue reading

Pastoral View

Another “whizz-by” day happened again but at least it was a productive one.  Not to be bragging or complaining, two of my office listings went under contract today.  As far as I'm concerned, the both of them are going to make happy homes for their new owners.After spending about a week showing homes on and off to a delightful young couple, … continue reading

The Look

Today wasn't the most eventful, yet for some reason the hours seemed to take flight from the time I arrived at my office.   I think what created it was my having been side-tracked by another Realtor calling and wanting to show Prairie Place on 1st at 9:00 a.m. this morning.  Since he'd never been in the complex, I had to make sure to give him a … continue reading

2831 – 4th St. NW

Today was one of those days where nearly everything I had originally planned to do was side-tracked by phone calls from buyers, sellers, and other agents who were all in need of assistance.  One of the agents calling when I picked up said, "I wasn't expecting anyone to answer."  I always consider such a statement a little odd to where I've been t … continue reading

Smoking Double

The rain this morning was a welcome relief for both man and beast.  After driving the number of miles I did out of town today, I'd say many of the farmers crops are fast approaching harvest.  I can't believe how quickly they've turned and do hope the yields will be good come harvest time so the farmers will continue to spend money in Mason City w … continue reading

Stacked Decks

This is certainly going to be a September to remember with these endless days of heat.  Hopefully we will get the rain that's been forecasted.  North Iowa is exceptionally dry to where I'm sure the reason our trees are shedding their leaves so early is because of the lack of moisture.  The oak trees around town appear to be in very sad shape.  … continue reading

Art Deco Beacon

Today was certainly one where I spent most of the morning on detail for a client/customer who inadvertently missed taking care of some necessary repairs to a home he owns before a new tenant moves in the end of this month.  For some reason, I seem to find more flaws than most when doing walk-thru's on vacant properties, even to the point of notici … continue reading

Lone Feeder

With the temps hovering around 90 degrees this afternoon, I'm sure everyone must've been having flashbacks to July.  It's certainly a much drier heat and by the looks of the trees, they're also struggling with this late drought.  It's not surprising to hear how wild and crazy some of our general public have been these past days.I mentioned to s … continue reading

425 – 1st St. NE

Another sale of mine came to a very soft landing to where the buyers made mention more than once that it was all because of me they were able to purchase the home most don't even dream of owning.  While doing our final walk-thru today, the buyer mentioned how she could see herself living in it for a very long time, and I can see why.  I has some … continue reading

No Surprise

This morning seemed to be nothing less than a repeat of last Tuesday's after Labor Day weekend.  The phone was ringing nearly non-stop from 8:00 am onwards. As noon approached, it finally quieted back down to a manageable level. There are several closings coming up in the near future I was working on and I think just about everything is ready as … continue reading
